This study is getting some circulation (though the press coverage basically echoes the press release). According to this study, "The ESRC study reveals that many teachers fear that computers would interfere with ‘genuine’ or book-based learning, particularly in the humanities and creative subjects and use ICT only for administration and routine tasks." In a sense, this is understandable - if a teacher's only use of a computer is in a classroom as a teaching tool, it's hard to learn what computers can do for you.
